Talking Adding Air Intake To 01 Kia Spectra Hatch GS

I don't know a thing about cars, but I do know that I really want a cold air intake. I love the sound that it gives off, not to mention that it could give my car an extra boost?

This probably sounds bad, but I'm not sure if I should get a cold air intake, a short ram intake, or any other intake?

I'm also thinking about getting a Bosal Muffler for my Kia from
Bosal Muffler Direct fit product

Help please? What would be the best choice for my car, if there is one?

Thanks!

Also, does this seem legit for my car?

Thumbs up

A cold air intake is probably the best way to go as engines usually like cool air. But make sure that the intake is not positioned where it can take water into the engine and cause damage or in the worst case hydraulic lockup. Don't position the intake to low on the front of the car and always run a filter. The noise won't change too much with a filter in but running without one is no good and can ruin your engine. best of luck.
